Our youngest children have a great safe space to explore and gain confidence whilst experiencing, for some of them, their first time being separated from their parents. We concentrate on the children's physical development along with speech and language acquisition, introducing lots of new vocabulary in a fun and interesting way for the children. We love singing, dancing and always sing lots of nursery rhymes. The experienced and friendly staff make this experience fun and exciting for the children. They learn how to become independent and make great new friendships on the way. The children take part in lots of transition activities and spend plenty of time with the other children in Nursery. The Caterpillar Class is a great introduction to the Nursery and the children are full of confidence when they move into the Nursery at 3 years old.
You may be eligible for 15 hours of free childcare for your child. To understand and check eligibility criteria for the 2 year old 15 hours entitlement please see here: ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
We encourage parents to choose a block of sessions for their child of 2.5 days per week.
The morning session is 9am-12pm
The afternoon session is 12pm-3pm (Including lunch)
Normally children will do Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning
or Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.
We can accomodate other hours within these times if required.
Children can attend all day if required.

Hi there, i think the 2 year old room is brilliant, George really enjoys himself and he can't wait to go nursery.
Since George has started nursery his speech has come on loads.
Staff are really nice and friendly, i couldn't ask for a better nursery for my son.
I have had 2 children come to dial park nursery/offerton Hall over the past 6 years and join the 2 year old room, my youngest will be going in the future too. Both of them have thrived into their own little person with the help of the amazing nursery staff, would recommend 100%.
"I just wanted to write to say THANK YOU. After struggling 2 months for Joshua to get settle in. Now he is settled and happy and that's because of the wonderful caring staff (Mrs. Atkinson & Mrs. Lloyd), providing a safe and nurturing environment. I've found that all staff are warm and friendly and encourage the children. I feel able to go to work/home knowing that Joshua is safe, happy and well cared for. I felt it is important to let you all know what a fantastic job you're doing."
